Thirty-Year Fixed Mortgage Rate Hits 2017 Low

August 24, 2017
Mortgage rates plummeted for the third consecutive week, according to new data from Freddie Mac
It was not a good week for the 30-year fixed mortgage rate, which fell for the fourth consecutive week to its lowest level of this year and its lowest mark since Nov. 10, 2016.
 
According to Freddie Mac, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.86 percent for the week ending Aug. 24, down from last week when it averaged 3.89 percent. On a bright note, it is higher than the 3.43 percent it averaged a year ago at this time.
 
The 15-year FRM this week averaged 3.16 percent, unchanged from last week. And the five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage averaged 3.17 percent this week, up from last week when it averaged 3.16 percent.
